Dental Cleaning and Oral Surgery
Whether your pet needs a routine scaling and polish (called prophylaxis by those who like fancy words) for oral wellness or has some notable issues (garbage mouth) a veterinarian has identified, we can certainly help. Using state-of-the-art dental radiography and years of expertise, our doctors are able to further explore your pet’s dental disease and tooth abnormalities and remedy the problem all in an outpatient surgery appointment. Even in a routine cleaning we do radiographs to help identify possible future concerns and provide an early assessment of any disease processes. We use full anesthetic protocols to make sure we are able to assess the entirety of your pet’s mouth including under the gums and all the way to the back.
Routine and Specialized Surgeries
We are equipped to handle a wide variety of surgical procedures from elective surgeries such as neuters, spays and declaws to more specialized procedures such as cherry eye repair, entropion repair, exploratory surgery, mass removals, and more. Our doctors research and practice the most up-to-date and recommended surgical techniques and procedures to make sure we are providing the best and safest medical care possible.
Vaccinations and Routine Lab Work
Our vaccine protocols stay current with the leading academic information in veterinary medicine. We can keep your pet current on all required core and non-core vaccines for their lifestyle. If your pet is on chronic medications for things such as thyroid, pain, heart, etc, we recommend annual/semi-annual lab work to ensure these medications are not affecting your pet’s health adversely. We can provide screening such as, thyroid screening, glucose curves, urinalyses, heart-worm antigen tests, fecal testing for ova and parasites, and comprehensive blood-work, both in our clinic, as well as out to our trusted laboratories, depending on your pet’s specific needs.
Radiography and Ultrasounds
Our clinic’s radiography department is equipped to capture full radiographic imagery of your pet’s target area of concern. Radiographs allow us to assess many different aspects of your pet’s internal organs, such as bone abnormalities, joint and socket confirmation, internal masses, potential foreign objects, and more. Our state-of-the-art radiology equipment significantly reduces many of the risks associated with x-rays.
We also offer ultrasonography for examining internal organs in ways that x-rays cannot. Ultrasound can give us a more detailed view of organs. X-ray gives us a broad picture of the organs, so we can see things such as size and positioning, whereas ultrasound can give us a better view of potential ailments of internal organs.
